The Chiefs only have one injury concern for this week's Super Rugby final against the Brumbies in Hamilton as Lelia Masaga is in doubt.

Masaga played a crucial role in the Chiefs Semi-final victory over the Crusaders and scored a second half try before coming off the field with an ankle injury.

Chiefs coach Dave Rennie told Newstalk ZB that he expects Masaga to play in the final and he is the only concern for a team that has played more Super Rugby matches than any other team in the last two seasons.

"We'll go on what we get back from the medics, but we're anticipating he's (Masaga) going to be OK, he's the worst of our worries," Rennie said.

The Chiefs have adopted a soft approach with captain Craig Clarke and Tanerau Latimer as they both shouldered huge amounts of work last week.

Rennie was unclear about whether he would start Latimer again or whether Sam Cane will be promoted to the starting line up.

Bundee Aki has so far sat out of training ahead of the Super Rugby final but he is expected to be available for this weekend's season defining clash.
